The Northwestern University Library looks forward to supporting your graduate studies and research! In 2014, we are pleased to announce several opportunities for incoming doctoral students to learn about our resources and services. We have customized several orientations for graduate students in humanities, social sciences, and some science disciplines, as outlined below.
Incoming doctoral students in Chemistry and the IBiS (Interdisciplinary Biological Sciences program) are invited to special, one hour programs. The Chemistry session will be held on Wednesday September 10th at 9:30 am in Mudd Library. The IBiS session will be held on Friday September 19th at 10:30 am in Mudd Library. Subject specialists will be available at these sessions.
For incoming doctoral students in humanities and social sciences disciplines, the University Library, in partnership with the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences (WCAS), The School of Communication (SoC), The School of Education and Social Policy (SESP), the Bienen School of Music, and The Graduate School (TGS) will host a half-day program – the Research Resources Forum (RRF), on September 22. The purpose of the Forum is to introduce students to the vast array of resources and services available via the University Library, and to provide a solid working overview of those materials, tools, and techniques that are relevant to scholarly research.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Harriet Lightman or Scott Garton, the library coordinator for the RRF. We hope to see you on in September, and we welcome you to Northwestern University.
